I created a very simple notifier, which uses the GITHUB_TOKEN variable to send a message in the PR concersation whenever a file in a folder changes. This works perfectly fine from PR from different branches, but fails when the PR originates from a fork with the errorResource not accessible by integration. example.
Now I did some research. This article states that I can access the token from a fork, but this one says that the token only has read permission when originating from a fork. So I am going to assume that I need issue write permission to create a message in the PR conversation, right?
If that is correct, my question is how to proceed. Do I need to create a Github App? It sounds appropriate, but it looks a bit complicated and I would love to see a better solution.
